Bunya pines are found only in a small area in North Queensland and in the Bunya Mountains in southeast Queensland. Here massive groups of Aboriginal people came from hundreds of kilometres away to feast on the nuts. At 1,100 meters the Bunyas can be cold and windy. It was for the two days we were there.

After a night in the Crows Nest Falls National Park we returned to Brisbane via Esk and Fernvale.
In 5 weeks we’ve driven more than 6,000 kilometres through outback Queensland. It was an epic road trip for us – across vast grassy plains, through remote sheep and cattle stations to the Channel Country, north to the Gulf of Carpentaria and east to the waterfalls of the Atherton Tablelands, and then south to the ancient rock art of Carnarvon Gorge.
